I remember the day in May when the hospice social worker called and told me that she had a patient who wanted to be buried on her own property. “Can she really do that? My supervisor gave me your card and said you would be able to help.” My first thought was, “Hallelujah! Someone at hospice actually paid attention to one of those talks I gave!!”
Some six months later, I would witness Tina get exactly what she had wished for. A beautiful home funeral AND a burial in a private grove at the back of her home. Readers, this was a textbook case.
